For Foundation Reinforcement, Birmingham, AL, Commercial Property Owners Turn to Engineered Solutions
Foundation reinforcement is absolutely crucial for any commercial structure built in Birmingham, Alabama, or anywhere else in the surrounding Piedmont region. Due to the loosely packed soils in the area, warehouses, roads, and even dams are compromised by suddenly shifting or sinking soils. This can cause extensive – and expensive – damage, which is why solidifying the foundation of these structures is so important. Thankfully, Engineered Solutions is here to help.
Here at Engineered Solutions, we offer a variety of foundation reinforcement solutions, all of which are designed to shore foundations and protect them against sudden changes in the soil. We are proud to offer the following for commercial structure or property owners in the greater Birmingham, AL, area:
- Carbon fiber reinforcement – Carbon fiber foundation reinforcement can be used to stabilize foundation walls, as well as excavated soils for earth retention. This state-of-the-art material utilizes a fiber-reinforced polymer that can bear more weight than steel.
- Helical piers – Piers are ideal for shoring newly constructed or recently damaged foundations. These piers, or micropiles, are effective at transferring the weight of a structure off of unstable ground to load bearing soil.
- Soil nails – Commonly used to provide foundation reinforcement for foundations built on sloped ground, soil nails can be easily installed next to existing buildings or other areas where excavation is not a viable option. They are the perfect solution for preventing or repairing foundation cracks or collapses.
All of our foundation reinforcement services come with a lifetime labor warranty for all of the work our design-build team performs. This helps to protect the purchases of our customers and provide them with peace of mind knowing they have a long-lasting geotechnical solution.
